Hello there! :)

Yesterday Internet Explorer started behaving unusually:

-Opening links would take much longer than usual, even on the smallest pages
-Youtube videos were replaced with a text stating adobe flash player/javascript wasn't really working properly (or just a big black square)
-Google's search results would be displayed in the usual list, but clicking it would lead me to a "page could not be displayed" error, with the URL malformed into something like windowsclick.com, with a long trail of chars.
-IE crashed just about every 2 minutes, sometimes going into task manager would cause the computer to freeze completely, forcing me to cut the power
-I downloaded FF as a quick alternative, but it started showing the exact same problems, but at least FireFox wouldn''t completely crash my pc.

I found a very similar problem on google you might want to take a look at, this guy seemed to be suffering from this "windowsclick" annoyance as well.

It is probably unrelated, but I saw "au_.exe" in my process list, which is apparently a trojan. I removed a .pf file which contained AU_.exe in its name (full name was something along the lines of "AU_.exe*INSERT GIBBERISH*.pf" from my prefetch list (C:\windows\prefetch).

However, 10 minutes ago, all problems suddenly disappeared, but I'm sure the malware causing this didn't just delete itself, since I haven't done anything myself to fix it yet.

Here is the dds log:

Hello there, thank you for taking the time to help me! :thumbup2:

Even though the redirection issues disappeared a few minutes before I posted this topic, the fatal freeze issues have not been resolved. A quick description:

The problem usually takes place when a new IE window is opened, but it has also happened in different places a few times. First the IE window becomes unresponsive (if that was the thing that triggered it), and although explorer can still highlight the buttons on my taskbar, as soon as I hit one of them (or "do" something else), the whole thing locks up and freezes. I can still ALT+TAB through my windows, but it doesn't do much good. The programs still running do appear to be functional however, I can hear Windows Live Messenger bleeps from open conversations, or hear the music winamp is playing. When I switch to an explorer window or IE window it doesn't do anything, but when I switch to something else such as winamp, I partially "regain" control in that I can sometimes start or stop songs. However, in any program when I hit the open file option (which uses explorer functions), the program itself becomes completely unresponsive much like other IE or explorer windows.

If you find something about Kill_Exp.bat, that's something I wrote myself out of pure desperation, so I could link it to a shortcut, all it does is kill any instances of explorer.exe and then reboot it.

Okay, now for the logs. I took two logs, one just before a crash and the other quickly after the crash. I've rewritten this post twice now due to these crashes (It's frozen a total of 5 times now in a matter of minutes), so I decided to do write my post in notepad first, heh.
Included in the attached zip is the first attach.txt (the one connected to the DDS.txt below) and a folder including logs from when Windows has only just booted up, before I manually started anything.

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and Download and Execute files

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the Trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?
When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

However, if you do not have the resources to reinstall your computer and would like me to attempt to clean it, I will be happy to do so.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Please let us know what you have decided to do in your next post.

Thank you for helping. :thumbup2:

This computer does not contain any kind of important information regarding banking etc. and will not be used for that purpose in the future.

I am surprised by how quickly it got infected, however. This laptop has only been around for 4 months, and even though it was meant to be used mainly be me for my university work and home entertainment, different people have accessed it in the meantime to "...do some stuff" and that has only increased recently.

I am aware of the risks of backdoor trojans, but I think I'm going with the cleaning option. Also, what trojans were specifically detected? Hupigon4.RCG? It may give me a clue as to where it came from.

I realized my hosts file contains these unauthorized entries:
127.0.0.1 208.67.70
127.0.0.1 38.99.150
127.0.0.1 38.99.150
127.0.0.1 88.255.90
127.0.0.1 opal.spod
127.0.0.1 sendspace
127.0.0.1 ad1.ny.yi
127.0.0.1 ad2.ny.yi
127.0.0.1 ny.yieldm
127.0.0.1 yieldmana
127.0.0.1 193.165.1
127.0.0.1 152.66.24
And I guess "mWinlogon: Userinit=c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe,c:\windows\system32\twex.exe," is a nasty little bugger. However, don't worry, I won't be attempting to remove it myself.

Thanks in advance! :)

Ok. Let's try cleaning then :thumbup2:


Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix tool:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows:
  • Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix, link
    Remember to re-enable them afterwards.

  • Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.
When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

C:\ComboFix.txt
New dds.txt log.


A word of warning: Neither I nor sUBs are responsible for any damage you may have caused your machine by running ComboFix. This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.

Hi again,

Uninstall old Adobe Reader versions and get the latest one here or get Foxit Reader here. Make sure you don't install toolbar if choose Foxit Reader!


Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:

File::
c:\windows\Kill_Exp.bat

DDS::
BHO: {5C255C8A-E604-49b4-9D64-90988571CECB} - No File
TB: {BDAD1DAD-C946-4A17-ADC1-64B5B4FF55D0} - No File
IE: {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a}

Registry::
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"UserFaultCheck"=-


Save this as
CFScript

A word of warning: Neither I nor sUBs are responsible for any damage you may have caused your machine. This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.

Refering to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe
Then post the resultant log.


Combofix should never take more that 20 minutes including the reboot if malware is detected.
If it does, open Task Manager then Processes tab (press ctrl, alt and del at the same time) and end any processes of findstr, find, sed or swreg, then combofix should continue.
If that happened we want to know, and also what process you had to end.
